History of GM Diesel Engines
General Motors has been in business officially since 1908 when horse drawn carriages began to fade in class to the automobile. GM Diesel engines were a separate part of the company, created in 1938, and mainly manufactured and provided GM diesel engines to large freight forwarders. Since that time, you can find GM diesel engines in buses, shipping trucks, trolleys, heavy duty commercial trucks, mid-size pickups, light-duty pickups and more.
As a larger part of the American population becomes conscious of fuel efficiency, demand has gone up for vehicles that produce more work for less fuel. And on top of this historic change in consumer needs, GM diesel engines are invested heavily in research and development, producing in line with others their most efficient GM diesel engines yet.
